The Meatless Meatballs from Trader Joe’s are delicious and make a good, hearty sandwich.
I like this product because it doesn’t have the overpowering wheat-y taste that some vegan substitutes do. The texture is softer than actual meatballs but not bad!
I couldn’t find any sub-style rolls at Trader Joe’s, so I bought the sourdough boule. At home I slightly toasted two slices of this bread while microwaving six meatless balls and a little bit of Trader Joe’s marinara. I spread the sauce on the bread, arranged the balls on top, and added a few slices of red onion. Some vegan Parmesan would be good here ( I wish Trader Joe’s carried that!)
